The Chery Ant is not a new car and has been produced in China since 2017, but it has been regularly updated over the years. Cherry ant has a strong body. Its frame is made of aluminum alloy, which is similar in strength to the alloys used in the aviation industry. Now the incredible strength of this small car has been confirmed by bearing the weight of the T-59 tank.
During this test, a tank is mounted on four Chery Ant machines. Considering that the T-59 weighs approximately 30 tons, each Ant has supported about 7.5 tons of weight. Their roofs may have bent, but Chery’s small cars survived. Now Chery can brag by telling the story of how his microcar can withstand the weight of a tank.
Chery has announced that 68.7% of the body of this car is made of 6000 series aluminum alloy. In addition to high strength, this alloy is lightweight and does not corrode unlike ordinary metal.
